which MA will mcdojo next?
we all know that no style is immune against a few mcdojos opening up here and there, but i'm wondering what you guys' opinions are on the next style to reach ATA levels of mcdojory.
i ask because my cousin, who trains BJJ, said he visited a school in the gainsville florida area that seemed shady and the next week he went to a fitness gym that had a BJJ class that was laughable at best.
i would like to think that the competitive nature of BJJ would keep it out of widespread bullshido, but i'm starting to wonder.

The mcdojofication of BJJ has been a process for years.
However competition will keep most of it honest

I hope it's absolutely anything else.
You have no idea how difficult it's been all these years trying to explain to people that I have Teh R33l Cardio-Kickboxing...

So...just out of curiousity...which styles are left? I mean which ones haven't Spiraled totally out of control? I know few styles have reached ATA-level yet, but many if not most are way beyond lost.
I'm sure there are a few others...anyone?
Out of those, I would guess BJJ.

has already become a belt factory:
franchising and merchandising opportunities:
and fixed matches
Spoiler:Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

i'm not worried so much about MT, just because, to my knowledge, it hasn't gotten as popular as BJJ.
